A really good composition and good framing which leads the eye through the picture. The size of the mountain in the background gives scale to it all.
The zoom lens must been near the upper end ?

well timed. Almost feels as if the image is about to come alive,the perspective and composition have a great marriage.

Dougie,
Just clicked on your site and found this image which I much prefer to my own. I think the lighting is better (not so warm, maybe, but also not so contrasty and therefore better details are shown). I think very early morning is perhaps not the best time for this shot. A well deserved EC.
Best wishes,
Brian

You've caught the moment very well and, with it being such a familiar and well photographed scene, that's all the more relevant. Nice one!
